Using Augmented Reality To Sketch In 3D

Now this is a very cool idea!

H/T Gizmodo

Gravity is a pen and pad that allows to sketch in 3D space using augmented reality. The cool patent-pending system hardware and software system has gone through several working prototypes and now they are looking to start manufacturing.


Gravity’s creators—a group of four Innovation Design Engineering students of the Royal College of Art, London—think that it can really change the creative process for designing 3D objects.

Here’s the video.

Several things come to mind when I see this.

  1. Kids will love this.
  2. Notice it is created by university students? They want to start manufacturing already. In the old days you had to get a company to back you. This is producers and consumers hooking up directly. That is how disaggregation works.
  3. 3D printing will speed this process up even more.
